Angry youths, aggrieved by the escape of the prime suspect in the serial killings at Akinyele local government area on Wednesday attacked the Oyo State Police Command Headquarters in Ibadan.
OYOINSIGHT.COM had earlier reported that Sunday Sodipo the prime suspect in the killings had escaped from the custody of the Nigerian police.
The youths, bearing placards with all sorts of inscriptions, created panic and tension as they thronged the police headquarters, located at the Eleyele Area of the state capital.
Addressing the angry youth, the state Commissioner of Police, Nwachukwu Enwonwu, assured them of the preparedness of the law enforcement agency to re-arrest the suspect and bring him to justice.
However, according to Pees Reporter, the protesters, who were not concerned by the assurance given by the police Commissioner, went wild and attacked security personnel at the command with stones and other dangerous objects.
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Olugbenga Fadeyi, who confirmed the incident, said it was true some students protested at the command headquarters.
“The CP and other senior police officers attended to them and answered all their questions. You know students now; some of them got out of control. But we were able to handle the situation professionally. They have since gone back,” he said.
